Here’s an update on Gatley and his properties from this morning at 5 am if anyone is wondering. Springfield News-Leader current article about Gatley

Ozarksmetalhead t1_j9ant2z wrote

Right? Listen I’ve met the guy in person many times. He’s actually got some sort of mental defect - I hate to speculate but maybe mildly retarded. When you meet him in person he seems like the most genuine and convincing person ever. I believe that’s why he hasn’t been taken care of like that.

I hate to wish bad on people but that single question is hard not too wonder. I mean - all the people he and or his company has screwed over without him even being aware at times. He’s had several scenarios where his management were the crooks and lying to him and such but I mean at the end of the day - disabled or not, he owns the properties and the management company and is truly the one solely responsible for all of the bullshit.

Oddly enough - even as bad as he is, Springfield became worse when they force sold the majority of his property. As shitty as he was, he did provide SOME sort of a service. Abandoned buildings and all. At least people living in his properties had a legal address to not be vagrant - and most of them were either there or just about there before.

I’m in no way being positive in his favor - the guy fucked me when I was 18 and the Mayors Commission for Human Rights had to help me out and they sure did!! I’m just stating additional information I know and additional aspects of looking at it.


oWatchdog t1_j9brmcn wrote

Owning property isn't a service. There is no value added when it comes to land lords.


Ozarksmetalhead t1_j9bssbl wrote

Oh really? So where are all the crackheads that cannot support themselves and don’t have what it takes to get their crap together and buy their own home - where are they living now that over 1000 homes that could’ve been available to them are now owned by solo first timers and management companies all with criteria those people cannot adhere to?

Just wondering where are they now again? Did they all get into homes of their own when the properties were sold or did they get non renewed and evicted, and have been bounced from literal wooded areas and fields to wooded areas and fields by the sheriff since? Because it seems to me that’s what happened. Listen man I’m all for individuals owning their own property but there are some who can’t and some who don’t want to. There are landlords who provide a service for that. Then there are individuals who cannot be rented to - and whether we like it or not they are equally as much a part of society as we more productive citizens are and deserve housing. It’s a need. People like Gatley absolutely provided a service for that and the proof is in the pudding brother.

I get your sentiment but don’t open your mouth and insert your foot. That’s what just happened there!

No he actually is man. He’s literally mentally handicapped and it is completely apparent when speaking with him. It’s not speculation. It’s a statement of fact to explain more about him and his situation. He isn’t all there.

A speech impediment is not a way to determine if someone is mentally handicapped. He may just have a speech impediment and that's fine. You can't say he literally is something when you also said,

You are wrong. He goes under a new company name now, and has a person named Wayne doing the management. I can give you his direct number to call and inquire. Somehow he still has about 50-100 properties that he owns. They are in the name of his new LLC. (Same thing he’s always done.)

Yep, did service work on some of his properties and it's the reason I don't work for that company anymore. Brought home fleas from one of the houses I worked on.

Holy hell that is insane. So then you have to treat your home at a cost to yourself because if you sue the bastard good luck actually getting any money from him. I witnessed that Wayne guy threaten to rape someone in a text message.

She actually considered suing him for other issues and that was the response she got. Also said he would kill her and her spouse. Was like “tell him to bring his @$$ out here I got a bullet for him too, I can’t wait till I see you” something very close to that. Pretty insane the quality of living for Springfield and the lack of authority over safety and stabilization.

CADOMA t1_j9k5gk1 wrote

I hear this a lot. Rental housing is a business like any other. Owning a house isn't always an option for people. What is the alternative? Do we strip people of their property and hand it to people who often don't want or can't afford it? Tear down all the apartments in the world or force people into an obligation to own a place they might want to leave soon? I think it could be better regulated but it's better than any alternative I've heard, but those alternatives are few and far between because it's easier to tear something down then to build something new.


jaydub1001 t1_j9k6l8b wrote

>Rental housing is a business like any other

It isn't. It's far from selling fruits and vegetables in a market. If I don't like the cost of bread at my local market, I can search around and find one for a dollar cheaper, perhaps. Housing is predatory. You NEED housing. Without it, you are not considered part of human society in any meaningful way. So, companies buy up property and jack up the prices. The market doesn't need landlords.

>Do we strip people of their property and hand it to people who often don't want or can't afford it?

Who doesn't want a home? Lol, tf?

>Tear down all the apartments in the world or force people into an obligation to own a place they might want to leave soon?

Ah, because the only alternative is to bulldoze them? Why not socialize the housing market? If I'm going to pay taxes, and I do, I want it to go towards helping people. Cut funding from the military and police forces and give people a place to live.

>I think it could be better regulated but it's better than any alternative I've heard, but those alternatives are few and far between because it's easier to tear something down then to build something new.

People don't want to listen to the socialized housing solution because they are scared of it, for some reason.


CADOMA t1_j9ktngp wrote

I love how long this response is without answering the question.

It cost me 10k to replace my HVAC. Let that sink in. That was why I avoided buying a home for years. Who shoulders that cost in your utopia?

I really want to know how the logistics of building an equitable free housing market. Because these are the issuea i came up with in about 5 minutes of thought.

Is maintenance covered in the cost of housing in your world?

Who gets the really nice house's? Is there some sort of lottery were unlucky people get shit? Or are we just talking about building Cabrini Green everywhere.

What happens to all of the existing rental properties? Do we buy them or just steal them from owners?

How do you deal with places like California where the citizens vote time and time again to stop multi home structure construction. The housing market there is garbage because the people won't allow apartments to be built.

Who gets Free housing? Do you have to qualify?

What happens to Airbnb?

I suspect this is why the most progressive countries in the world haven't adopted this concept. It's far better to regulate the rental business. The US does this poorly. Take more control and give it to the renters. Make sure that certain protections are enforced by law. Making it impossible for slumlords to profit or exist.

Also a basic income for those who need it would help retain the power of choice.


jaydub1001 t1_j9kvcq7 wrote

I see you have a lot of questions. Unfortunately, I don't have the time to answer them. It seems, however, you may be interested in finding them and you're not arguing in bad faith. If that's the case, I'd search for those answers from someone more knowledgeable than myself. Most of your questions are "who pays for it" and the answer is simple: we all do. We are already (most of us) paying for housing. What if we took away the investment aspect of it? Prices drop.

It shouldn't be a commodity and it should be a human right to be housed.

The other questions are about what to do with all the other properties. Well, I'm not sure. But, if you own the home you're living in then nothing should change. If you own 500 homes, then too bad.

This made me laugh out loud. I came here thinking “surely Fidelity will be listed” but I didn’t think I’d be this right.

I’m currently renting with Fidelity, AMA. It’s a fucking nightmare. Ps: They are owned by OTC and they slumlord the area around OTC. Their main gig is denying tenants maintenance, the manager Fred Fox argues with every tenant instead of just helping them.

It’s amusing the lengths they will go to deny service. It probably costs them more constantly doing duct tape repairs. If they would just replace things correctly from the start they wouldn’t be so busy patching holes.

Fidelity can get bent HARD.

custardgoddess04 t1_j9e0toq wrote

I hate, hate, HATED this company. We had a leak in the tub, which a ring on our ceiling downstairs. The maintenance staff never assessed the plumbing in the tub itself instead they painted the ceiling. Obviously this didn't fix the leak, but I couldn't see the problem anymore.

When I moved out my roommate stayed at the apartment. I asked the lady at the desk if there was anything else I needed to do to be done with this property, because I was moving out of town and didn't want to come back for any technical bs for this property. She assured me that I was all clear. Fast forward a year and a half. I'm living in KC and I get a call from Cowhard saying they need me to drive from KC in between my 12 hour shifts to sign a piece of paper to release my half of the deposit.

I don't think someone who bought a bunch of houses and rent them out for significantly more than their mortgage payment is really comparable to McDonald's. McDonald's takes raw food products and cooks them and packages them in a way that's convenient, and thus adds value. Landlords are more like people who buy McDonald's food and sell it for more than McDonald's charges to people who don't have a 750 credit score, while adding no value.


22TopShelf22 t1_j9dsvag wrote

So you act like land lords do nothing. Who think pays the mortgage when the tenants don't. Who pays the mortgage when the tenants trash the house? Who pays to fix a trashed house? I know a few landlords that work a lot and pay a lot of people to You can fix your credit score. Pay your bills on time and live with a budget. Try the Dave Ramsey course. People have low credit scores as a result.of not paying their bills on time. Its pretty simple.


WendyArmbuster t1_j9ew7pw wrote

>So you act like land lords do nothing.

No, I said they add no value. Leeches do something. They put effort into what they do, but they're still leeches.

>You can fix your credit score.

My credit score is perfect. I mean perfect. I get the lowest rates on everything. I've cultivated my credit score my whole life, deliberately. My investments are doing well. I'm not desperate, and that's why I'm not renting. It's true that the overall problem of low credit scores and financial illiteracy in America are as big of a problem as landlords, but the excessive rentals in Springfield is as big of a problem.

I will say that it's important to be able to rent when you need a house for less time than would make sense to buy in a particular location, and in that case landlords do add value, but our rental situation is such that the excessive rentals are screwing with housing prices, and it needs a correction. We have way too many in Springfield right now.

The second I only lived in for 48 hours because they chose not to disclose the complex was infested with roaches. The apartment was in complete disrepair still and they had us move in while still painting and installing. Got all my money back but Wooten is sketchy asf if you don’t live directly in the middle of town.

That happened to me. My rent went up $100 one year when I lived in one of their properties. I complained nothing was getting fixed but rent was being raised. They told me it was because all the other housing prices were going up, not because they were making improvements. Well no duh.

I’ve lived in three different Wooten apartments, first one was kinda shitty but not that bad and the other two have been great, I’ve been living in my current one for three years.

iced-macchiato t1_j9aue0n wrote

Glad it’s been good for you. The property we lived in several years ago looked nice and the initial property manager was great. However, it went downhill after she left. They couldn’t find a new property manager the entire year after. We lived with leaks from our upstairs neighbors for months and it ruined a wall in our apartment because without a manager they couldn’t schedule maintenance. The phone was never answered. I had to go down to the central office on Seminole to tell them the wall was literally soaking wet and we had a giant puddle on our floor. We also lived without hot water for several months in the winter. Worst experience I’ve ever had in an apartment complex. To move out I had to go to another apartment complex and tell them to let the Wooten Co know we were leaving. Then they took 5 months to process our move out.


trashchan333 t1_j9av9ta wrote

birbgurl819 t1_j9cebh4 wrote

When I rented from them, which was almost 4 years ago, I had just gone through a difficult breakup and needed to move asap. I rented a tiny 1 bedroom apartment from them. When I toured the property, it was clear that it still needed some work, which they promised to complete before my move in date. The issues seemed minor at the time - the kitchen sink needed replaced, carpet needed professionally cleaned, a window AC unit needed to be installed, and all of this was disclosed to me and I was assured it would be finished before I moved in. I went ahead and paid the deposit and prepared to move in less than a month ( about 3 weeks from the time I was approved, I think.) Move in day comes and what do you know - none of the issues had been fixed. In fact, the apartment looked worse than it did the day I looked at it. Despite needing out of the messy breakup living situation, I held off on moving my stuff and contacted them. I told them I had two days at most and it needed taken care of. They apologized and said it would be done. Two days pass, it wasn’t done. Still no functioning kitchen sink, still no AC unit (this was in June), and the carpet looked like it had been shampooed by a 5 year old. In fact, it was still somewhat damp and smelled horrible. It was a weekend and I couldn’t get ahold of them, but it was the only day I had a truck to move, so out of desperation I went ahead and moved my stuff in, cleaned it to the best of my ability, set up several fans, and tried to make it work. It took several days to actually get a maintenance guy over there, and when he did get there he didn’t have a key to get in. He blew up my phone at work and I actually had to leave work early to let the dude in to install the AC. The kitchen sink was an ongoing issue and took about 2 months before it actually functioned. I’m sure you’re wondering about the carpet… well, not only did it look and smell disgusting, it was also infested with both fleas and bed bugs. I had to show them a literal bed bug in a ziplock bag before they did anything about it, because the photos of bites all over my skin weren’t enough. They eventually replaced the carpet entirely, but it took quite some time. A few other issues they didn’t disclose to me:

A serious mouse infestation. Black mold. The oven was a fire hazard - the extremely outdated temperature knob didn’t work properly so it overheated and almost burned the place down. And when the winter months came, I also discovered the furnace was completely shot and didn’t work at all.

It was a literal nightmare from the day I moved in til the day I moved out.

MCLand t1_j9vishn wrote

I agree with they don't really fix things...

Ex: 1. one of our windows began leaking a few years back and they sent someone who supposedly patched it. Recently the top inside of the frame began falling in the room. They came back and sealed the outside only without exploring or addressing whatever's happening inside the wall. It's like a ticking time bomb.

  1. The owner decided some trees were too close to the house so hired someone to cut them, who left the stumps untreated. Despite telling them, they haven't done more so guess I'm stuck trimming suckers forever or having to somehow treat the stumps myself.

  2. For years I told them the furnace filter grates were inaccessible, someone painted over the screws and they don't have quick-releases. 3x they promised to look into it. We've lived here 5 yrs now. Only recently did I discover the filters live deep up inside my furnace, almost inaccessible, and changing them puts me in contact with fiberglass I cuts my arm on sharp sheet metal. I let G&J know and they said they'd charge us to change the filters and had no further responses once I let them know I'd changed them myself (though provided photos, video, and explanation of how difficult it is). (YouTube search furnace filter Rheem Criterion II to see what I mean).

They're very hands-off. We've luckily had to call them incredibly infrequently and they don't bother us much. Only started annual inside/outside inspections this last year.

Aside from the above maintenance things, I like them.

I'm only half being sarcastic here... raking leaves rather than leaving them does harm insect populations. Maybe go talk to them and see if they need help or assistance? if it bothers you this much..., it doesn't seem to bother them. (Please don't pull a Karen and call the city/cops)

I'm not helping that guy with anything. When he moved in there was a woman and a 2 year old kid, but he would cuss her so loudly in their back yard that we could hear it inside our house. Sometimes he would cuss her from inside the house and we could hear it plain as day in our yard. Trash. She has since left, which I'm thankful for.

There are a lot more bad tenants than bad landlords.
